OCF - 02/16/15

On Monday evening Fr. John went to Kent State University to give a Lenten Lecture to OCF students from Akron and Kent. Fr. John's presentation compared the prophecy of Malachi (who lived 400 years before Christ) with the "cancer of complacency" which exists in our own time. He reminded the students that Great Lent was not a time of negativity or simply a period to "give up" food items, but an opertunity to make positive changes in ones life. To make themselves right with God by following His will and adhering to the greater commandment to "Love one another as I have loved you." Fr. John concluded by saying that if we all followed this way of thinking, living, and serving God we would be helping to bring the bottom up, which would strengthen the Church in our times.
